    I have some questions for people that are good at social networks. I have done a lot of SEO but not much with social. A good friend of mines brother is a producer in Hollywood and has done some pretty big shows and has good connections. His brother is starting a project and wants his brother and me to handle the social/seo. He talked to a investor that said he would front some pretty big capital if we can get 100k eyeballs on the product through social networks. The thing is I'm sure we can get 100k random eyeballs fairly easy but then when they launch the product if it's not target it will look pretty lame if nobody is into it. Does this sound doable to get 100k targeted or semi targeted followers between facebook and twitter? I have tweet attacks and I'm just starting with that but don't want to get his account banned. Any tips or advice would be appreciated.

    i hate saying impossible but this is a pretty large request, unless his content actually generates true fans even if you get the numbers the content (discussion, people commenting) is the main dish, the numbers are just a nice little decoration

    Ya I agree, there telling us the content is really good and they're going to be pumping out videos for youtube/video sites plus some small tv ads here and there. I guess the big thing is making the content more viral.

    if the budget is right you can make anything happen, 100k on fb imo should be achievable, even targetted as you have the time to do it

    I don't see why you can't do it. As you say the man has good connections, They're
    the people you want. You will need to set out a plan and a proposal to the brother.
    Tell him you're going to need some exclusive promotional stuff so you can drip feed your
    fans and hype them up. You don't want to do this type of operation with fake fans just
    think of the payoff you'll be able to set yourself up as a Hollywood social media guru.
    Don't just set up a page, launch it! Tell the brother he needs to get all his "good connections"
    as fans and interact with them so they invite their friends. Obviously he wants a success as well.

    You got to get your feet wet sometime so you may as well jump right in.
    Don't listen to the negs they'll give you doubts and hold you back.
    If you don't take this opportunity you may live to regret it but you'll never
    regret trying.

    100k fans is not a large request. It is very doable in the given timeframe. You've got 5 months to get 100k fans. That is 650 fans per day. Very doable.

    I think the best method would be to start by getting ANY fans you can. Get some big numbers to show off. Do that in about 1-2 months, then use the rest of the time to work on targeted fans and encouraging people to share the page with their friends.

    You'll want to invest a lot of time/money into a very good landing page. Pictures, a video, like buttons. Your landing page should keep people on your fanpage, not send them to your site. You want to send traffic to your site mostly through status updates.

    Just make it good content to where people want to be a fan. Hire graphic designers if you aren't one yourself, get some "Unlocked" quality content for when they like it, pull out some FBML Swag :)

    IT would be hard to get actual targetted fans for the niche he's looking for. However, alot of the times facebook is just a numbers game and if you have a big fanpage (50k+) then it will sort of go viral and get people who are interested naturally. I can build up a fanpage for you.....

    Yes, I really agree with kickflip and phatzilla on this, build your accounts first with untargeted friends and when it reach high likes, it will go viral, cause most people searching for your niche will actually find it and like it(Based on my experience people likes pages that has a lot of fans rather than low fans same niche pages) and you should build conversations in your pages, like post questions or poll that people on your niche might be interested and you must also build a support team for this, like create 90 accounts that are adding people that might be interested on your niche, use the 90 accounts to advertise your facebook fan page. :)
